We’ve Not Given Up on the Idea of Strike – NUPENG

Published

on

The Nigerian Union of Petroleum and Natural Gas Workers (NUPENG) stated it had not shelved its proposed plans to go on strike over the planned sale of refineries across the county.

nupeng_logoThis message is contained in a statement from the NUPENG President, Igwe Achese, made in Lagos on January 1, 2014, Wednesday.

It said the union’s position was still that the decision to privatise the four refineries was hastily taken. Therefore, it would be resisted by NUPENG.

“The attention of the union was drawn to some stories that NUPENG has suspended the strike. The union states that the report is erroneous and full of distortions of facts,” the statement said.

It also added that NUPENG members in NNPC and its subsidiaries had however embarked on daily prayer sessions, calling for God’s intervention.

“NUPENG members to intensify on the prayer sessions, which is a prelude to the nationwide strike coming up this week,” the statement quoted Achese as saying.

It would be recalled that NUPENG and PENGASSAN in December 2013 had threatened to start an industrial action in January, in case the Federal Government failed to reverse its decision to privatise the country’s four refineries.
